Every-one deserves some classical music.
CutTime® makes it work

Classical music creates a spiritual communion for its devotees in large, silent concert halls.
But what about everyone else, who might prefer to know this mysterious treasure casually?

With shorter, lighter and participatory music, CutTime brings the sport of classical and esp. the symphony into churches & schools, homes & offices, cafes & clubs for fun times, revealing key concepts into instrumental sonatas as well as Detroit’s classical soul.

Batting from a deep bench of lively hits, funky new works and game-changing metaphors, CutTime concerts & reading events are info-taining when led by bassist-composer, Kresge Fellow Rick Robinson (Mr. CutTime),a 22-year veteran of the Detroit Symphony.

CutTime hires musicians across the country to inspire humanity with its own rich legacy. CutTime means classical music can inspire the WHOLE community!

Robinson has been an innovative force in bringing chamber ensembles into nontraditional venues and classrooms, mixing it up with a variety of creative repertoire and generally proving that classical music belongs not on the fringes of contemporary culture but at the heart of everyday life.

Rick Robinson is bringing classical music to the masses— which may be one of the most challenging jobs in all of music.
